Design features

  • Features similar to our Thermal Manikins adapted to simulate sweating
  • Highly advanced sweat system with 125-250 invidually controlled sweat glands ensuring a uniform and precise dosing of water during operations
  • Our sweating manikins are operated with an enhanced PC SW interface for sweat control
  • Ability to control sweating manikin with standard lab SW through data interface to the Manikin SW

Typical applications of sweating manikins

  • Thermal comfort in climate with high humidity
  • Thermal comfort and evaporative properties of clothes, bed-linen, sleeping bags etc.
  • General research where cooling by sweating is relevant
